I first experienced Shorty’s about 25 years ago when my dad would bring my brother and I here for donuts. I fell in love with this place on my first visit! It has changed hands a few times over the years, and I have since...More

Traveling through and we wanted to eat local: this Mom and Pop place fit the bill! Friendly service, large portions and great food at a reasonable price. Our party of 3 highly recommends the breakfast quesadilla and spudnuts for the road!

We always go here for breakfast when we are in town. We always have Hannah for our waitress and could not ask for a better waitress.

Yup, it's true! Texarkana locals love this place and have for years. Located in the Oak Lawn Shopping Center just off of New Boston Road (US 82), this is a good place to take a break for breakfast, lunch or a good Southern Maid Pastry....More

Stopped in to grab donuts on our way to the airport. The blueberry donut was delicious, the apple fritter was good, the peach pie also good, but the red velvet donut was undercooked and raw in the middle. Lots of customers, great "greasy spoon" ambiance,...More
